HP what are you doing to me? Did you put something in the computers you sent me? Like is there invisible, addicting gases oozing out of them? If there is, please tell me, because weird things are happening.
Well, it’s not that weird, but why are you making special appearances in my dreams? Huh?? They’re MY dreams; I’m supposed to be the star – at all times (hence my pillow case) and they’re supposed to be nice.
Today I got my hands on the Blueant V1 Bluetooth headset, which is I believe the first ever voice controlled headset available. I took some unboxing pictures and decided to share them with you.
It’s similar in design to other Blueant headsets we reviewed in the past like the Z9, the only difference is this one is silver. Before we get on with the pictures I wanted to mention that by far this was the easiest Headset to set up ever, a combination of the voice command prompts from the headset and the iPaq 910 allowed me to pair the phone in less than a minute.
When HP asked me if I was interested in reviewing one of their work stations, I said sure. When they told me it was on its way I expected a huge box, but what arrived was a small one. I immediately thought it was something else, maybe some accessories to go along with it. I was quite surprised when I opened the box though. It was indeed the HP Ultra Slim dc7800, a workstation that measures 9.90 x 10.00 x 2.60 inches and weighs only 7 pounds.
I was immediately impressed by its size, or lack of. While the size surprised me I was a bit concerned that a machine this small could not handle the same day to day workings as a traditional work station. (But) I was always told great things come in small packages so the fact that it was being powered by Intel Core 2 Duo E6550 2.33 Ghz CPU and 2 Gigs of ram reassured me. The dc7800 could probably deliver the same results as a traditional work station.
In responce to a YouTube video by a user who claimed they found a glitch in the popular golf game Tiger Woods 2009, EA released a video of their own, showing that the supposed glitch was in deed not a glitch but the fact that Tiger Woods simply is that good.
Let’s roll the Video Tape!
IE 8 Beta 2 is available for download. Click here to download a version suited to your specs.
The new IE 8 beta 2 is loaded with features and plug-ins, and after reading all the features it has it makes me wonder if it isn’t becoming a bloated Monster. Feel free to post and let us know what you think of it, I have been using it for about 20 minutes now and I have to say it is a lot more stable than the previous version and I like it a bit but may go back to IE 7 depending how the next few hours or so go with it.
Just replace MAGICNUMBER with the hotfix’s KB article number and you’ll get a download link to the out of band hotfix within a few minutes.
Epson on Wednesday will officially announce their new high end Artisan line. The new line will launch with two new all-in-one printers, the Artisan 700 and my favorite the Artisan 800.
The Artisan 800 if the mother-load of all printers, it is wi-fi capable, has a 3.5 inch LCD touchscreen that only lights up the buttons you need to use at that moment, the screen will also allow you to control the printers functions, edit images (brighten, darken, rorate and even crop).

After a somewhat confusing law was passed in NY, Newegg.com began collecting taxes, as of this past Thursday August 21st 2008 Newegg stopped collecting NY State Tax.
In an email on the 22nd, Newegg informed its customers of the change, it also made NY residents aware that they are responsible for paying taxes for their purchases on their NY State income tax return, under the terms of the “use tax”.
